According to a ANI report, "Nalini has to be present at CBI Kolkata office on March 10. However, the CBI headquarters in New Delhi denied sending any summons to P Chidambaram's wife.

Nalini's name first cropped up in the purported letter from Saradha boss Sudipta Sen to CBI in April 2013, where it was claimed that she had been paid from Saradha accounts."

Even as trouble mounts for Chidambaram's wife, A Maharajganj court has admitted a complaint against former union home minister P. Chidambaram for his alleged remarks that Parliament House attack accused Afzal Guru was not given a proper hearing before he was executed.


Lawyer Vinay Kumar Pandey in his complaint pointed to media reports wherein the senior Congress leader was quoted on the matter.

The petitioner also said that Chidambaram's statement that Jawaharlal Nehru University student leaders were not anti-national but had acted stupidly was also enough to take action against him.

The court has fixed April 11 as the next date of hearing in the case.
